Spring Fever, Spring Fever…and a St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl This Sunday

In Best of Breckenridge by Ellie Hartman

Places to Find Cheap Drinks to Scull this Spring Break…Breck Knows How to Send it!

I think we can all agree (or agree to disagree) that everyone is ready to kick back and enjoy that time of year that is full of sunshine, warmer days, slushy snow, and parties galore – the time of good ol’ spring break! Nonetheless, the locals of Breckenridge have not started feeling that spring break vibe quite yet.

With our 50 inches of snow last week and more to come, the locals of Breckenridge are ass deep in the snow, breaking their shovels and hopefully finding the time to ski the sweet powder. I am not 100% sure the exact feeling from the out of towners here for spring break, but the common phrase “man, this is a ton of snow!” has me thinking that they are baffled by the snow fall as well. Whatever your take on the snow is, local or non-local, spring break is upon us and we must send it into the spring fever the way it should be sent!

This spring we should all give it the good ol’ college try by letting the hair down a bit more and sculling a brew or two! Cause ‘why not?’ Here are some really awesome specials that offer inexpensive drinks to help you send it during your spring break or, for the locals, to throw down after their hard work on staycation.

Empire Burger

Get ready to slug some brews at this amazing restaurant! Empire Burger sells Miller High Life and PBR bottles for $2.75 all day, every day (and open late too)! Empire Burger is also a sweet spot for delicious burgers, bar bites, boozy milkshakes, and dipping sauces galore.

Northside Pizza

Ready to add a little mystery into your spring break drinking? Northside Pizza offers mystery shots, concocted by the bartender for $2 all day, every day!  If you are worried about what that mystery shot might bring, especially the next morning… On the weekends Northside also puts up a happy hour that offers $2 PBRs, $4 Craft Beer, $3 shots, 2-for-1 appetizers, and $0.50 wings! The laid-back joint also slings banger pizzas to eat there, to go, or for delivery.

The Gold Dredge

This bar is an absolute hidden gem, that long time locals love to chill at. It is also a place to grab a nice little snack to finish off your big day of spring break or to put you in the right direction for the night! The Montucky Cold Snack is a beer that goes down the scullet in the most refreshing way and that also gives back to local communities. The Gold Dredge sells these refreshing cold snacks for $2 all day, every day! “Have fun. Do good. Be good.” -Montucky Cold Snacks.

Fiesta Jalisco

Are you in the mood for a delicious, smothered burrito, kicker margaritas, or other well-prepared Mexican dishes? Well, Fiesta Jalisco will get you kick started with an awesome special of $6.95 Corona Ritas (Margarita with a Coronita in it). These are my personal favorite to jump start my spring break! They have 32 ounce Corona and Pacifico for $9.00 if you want to go big! Also, bring your spring breaker buddies and split a bucket of 5 beers for only $18.95 ($3.80 a beer).

Gold Pan Saloon

“You know you have had a great night in Breck if you close down the Pan!” This is a phrase you hear often amongst the local crowd, especially during busy times, such as, spring break! This is an awesome spot to shred the dance floor or sit at Breckenridge’s oldest bar. Also, it is a stellar bar to down a PBR or a few. They sell PBRs for $3 on draft all day, every day (plus a great list of craft beers too)!

Mi Casa

Mi Casa is a classic Mexican spot in Breckenridge! It has extremely tasty dishes, with unique flavors and mouth-watering margaritas. What more can you ask for from a slammin’ Mexican Restaurant? Well they would tell you that they also have an incredible happy hour that is a must hit this spring break! Mi Casa sells Mexican beers for $2, 3 tacos for $5, $6 wings, an unlimited queso bar, and $6 pitchers.

The Historic Brown

The Brown is a great place to see live music, vibe with the local crowd and enjoy a variety of bar games! They always have cheap beverages, but one of their biggest specials is the $6 PB&J, which is PBR and Jim beam shot!

The Blue Stag

The Blue Stag is a Main Street happy spot! The bar has excellent vibes, with a cozy cabin feel, live music some nights, and an outdoor fire pit where you can always sit down with others to stir up great conversation. The cheapest special they have one of the ultimate specials for sculling brews because during happy hour, Montuckys and PBRs are just 2 bucks! They also offer $4 well drinks and wines, as well as, a choice of two small plates for $15.00. (*Insider tip – HH is 3-5pm BUT bring in your Après-Ski Trail Map and HH starts at NOON!!)
